Activities & Attractions Near Køge Strand
Activities at the Hotel
Bespoke walking and running routes
Is the freedom to incorporate nature into your daily exercise high on your list of priorities? Then join us on a walking/running route and explore the hotel’s nature surroundings. We’ve created three different digital running routes and added them to the RunGo app, which uses turn-by-turn navigation to show you which route to run, the remaining distance and which roads or paths you should take. Just like a car’s GPS system.
The shorter three-kilometre route is also recommended as a walk-and-talk route for a healthy break during a meeting or seminar. RunGo is free and available for iOS and Android – for both smartphone and Apple Watch.
Various outdoor games
If you feel like challenging your family, colleagues or friends to fun games, just contact the reception. We have both King's Game, volleyball, frisbees and football including goals.
Various board games
Board games are more popular than ever, and everyone can join in. We have a selection of different board games that you are welcome to borrow. Just contact the reception.
More and more Danes have fallen in love with paddleboarding. And we can understand why. Try for yourself how fun and lovely it is to see the coast from the water. Price: 300 DKK per person for 2 hours including a life vest.
Attractions Near the Hotel
Kjøge Mini-By is a miniature Danish town located right next to the hotel. The town is an exact replica of Køge as it looked in 1865, but built at 1:10 scale.
Stevns Klint is a cliff east of Stevns that stretches 17 km and rises to a height of 41 metres from the sea. It was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2014. Stevns Klint is the best place in the whole world to see evidence – in the form of a layer of fish clay – of one of the greatest natural disasters and mass extinctions in the history of the Earth. Enjoy nature, see the fish clay and learn about geology, fossils and the extinction of the dinosaurs.
The Forest Tower
The 45-metre-high Forest Tower is situated in one of Gisselfeld Abbey’s forests and offers a 360-degree view of the beautiful South Zealand landscape. The tower is built from corten steel and local oak. The Forest Tower is part of Camp Adventure, a unique and fun nature experience for all ages with an opportunity to rappel in trees.
Roskilde Cathedral and the royal tombs
Roskilde Cathedral is considered one of the most important church buildings in Denmark and one of the most important monuments in general, due to its unique architecture and its connection to Danish history. The cathedral was built during the 12th and 13th centuries as the first brick-built, Gothic-style cathedral in Scandinavia, but today it reflects 800 years of changing architectural styles. The cathedral has been the royal family's burial church for centuries and contains 38-40 royal tombs: 19-21 kings and 19 queens. Alongside frescoes and art, they tell the story of the kings and queens, the Danish church and Denmark over a thousand years. The cathedral was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995.
The Viking Ship Museum
The Viking Ship Museum is Denmark’s national museum for ships, seafaring and boatbuilding culture from the Viking Age through to the Middle Ages. Through exhibitions, research and experimental archaeology, the museum seeks to create a living and modern museum that makes our maritime history interesting and relevant to visitors today.
Ragnarock's 1,200 m2 main exhibition space consists of 11 themes that present the story of how music and youth have pushed boundaries and influenced society over the years. Take part in a captivating journey through the history and development of music and youth from the 1950s onwards – a journey that engages, activates and makes you sweat.
Tivoli Gardens is an amusement park located in the centre of Copenhagen close to Central Station and Strøget. The park is the world's second oldest of its kind, surpassed only by Bakken. Walt Disney drew a great deal of inspiration from Tivoli, which is almost magical when in full bloom with some of Denmark’s most beautiful perennials, flowers and shrubs. Enjoy a walk in the beautiful garden with historic buildings, cosy nooks and fun-filled squeals.
Copenhagen Zoo is one of Europe’s oldest zoos, where you can see more than 4,000 fascinating animals and cross continents in a pull-along wagon. Come and see the iconic pandas and enjoy a meal alongside these bamboo-eating bears in the magnificent Panda House. You can get so close to the polar bears that it will give you chills, or see the world from above like a giraffe.
Nature Experiences Near the Hotel
Nearest Places to Swim
If you’re looking for a refreshing dip, we recommend the harbour bath at Sandkaj, situated just a stone’s throw from the hotel. Relax, savour life by the water in the middle of Copenhagen or take a stroll along the promenade. Do you like the feel of sand between your toes? Visit Amager Beach with its historic bathing complex, Helgoland. It only takes 15 min. by Metro to get to the beach.
Nearest High Street
In the heart of Copenhagen is Strøget, which was once the longest pedestrianised street in the world. Strøget takes you from Kongens Nytorv to City Hall Square and is lined with hundreds of shops, cafés and restaurants. Take a few detours off Strøget and experience old Copenhagen with its charming alleyways and innovative shops. In the Århusgade district close to the hotel, the transformation from the old free port to the modern district is going at full speed. Guests can find a varied array of original speciality shops and eateries, all with the same focus as ours: sustainability and great experiences. The Århusgade district is also known as The Red City.
Nearest Green Area
Copenhagen is famed for its many green oases. Take a stroll along Copenhagen's ramparts and experience Kastellet (the Citadel). If you love unspoiled nature, we recommend that you take the Metro to Amager Common, a 223-hectare nature reserve. If you prefer a longer hike, you can even head out on the brand-new 21-kilometre-long Amarmino route. For a true forest experience, we recommend a trip to Dyrehaven (the Deer Park) north of Copenhagen. Dyrehaven is a large nature park filled with forest areas, small lakes and open plains. As the name suggests, Dyrehaven is famed for its more than 2,000 wild deer, and you will most likely encounter a herd of grazing animals there. The characteristic red gates stand at all entrances. The most used, Klampenborg gate, is located right by Klampenborg Station.
Sights, attractions and cultural experiences in Copenhagen. Among some of the most famous are Tivoli Gardens, Amalienborg, Christiania, Christiansborg, the National Museum and the ZOO.
